Here’s how we can help:

  • Appropriate Socialization, Problem Prevention and Training your puppy without the frustration of biting, whining, chewing and house training accidents — all this while you enjoy the cuteness of puppy shenanigans
  • Teaching your out-of-control-teen or your adult dog to listen to you — not matter where you are! Come when called, stay when asked, enjoy fun walks without dragging you human down the street, and more
  • Integrating a new dog into the family
  • Enjoying walks with your dog without him lunging and barking at other dogs
  • A dog who enjoys meeting new people and dogs and knows how to do so politely
  • A dog who knows how to chill at home and out in the world
  • Etc.,

Family, friends, career. That means a schedule full of errands, helping with homework, social obligations, and long hours at work — not to mention your commute. You want your dog to enhance life, not make it harder – Whether you’re after Puppy Relief, Basic Dog Manners, or need to address a troubling Behavior Issue, D for Dog spells results.

The D for Dog difference

We only use scientific reward-based training methods.

We want your dog to love the process of learning his new behaviors.  And want you to feel good knowing that we only use most up-to-date humane training methods available & proven to be effective on any species.

We are all about real life results.

It’s all fine and good if your dog behaves in class or shows off for the trainer.  But what really matters is that he responds to you in your home, in public places — wherever your day takes both of you.

We personalize to fit your needs.

We can teach you to train your dog, or simply do the training for you. Either way, we build a training plan for your goals and lifestyle, and we make it as easy and convenient as possible.

We’re certified professional dog trainers.

In an unregulated industry, you want to know your dog trainer knows her P’s & Q’s – that’s why we’ve opted for the most rigorous education available, and committed ourselves to high level ongoing professional development.
